Memorial Day events planned for Monday

Monday is the one day set aside each year specifically to remember those who have fought and died for our country. At 10 a.m. Sheridan's annual Memorial Day Parade will start at Main and Dow and go south along Main Street to the County Courthouse. A brief ceremony is planned at the courthouse where 40-50 wreaths will be placed and a cannon shot. At 11:45 a.m., there will be a "Post Everlasting" ceremony at the Sheridan Municipal Cemetery. Should the weather turn bad, events will be held at the Sheridan VA Medical Center Auditorium. Currently, there is a 30-50 percent chance of rain for Memorial Day. At noon, VFW Post 1560 will host a free public barbecue to commemorate local VFW members who have died in the year. A special service will be held at 2 p.m., followed by live music on the patio at 3 p.m. #dally #news
